A Retelling of the Myths of Ancient Greece
One of the most imaginative minds alive retells the greatest stories in history - the Greek Myths.
The Greek myths are amongst the best stories ever told, passed down through millennia and inspiring writers and artists as varied as Shakespeare, Michelangelo, James Joyce and Walt Disney.
They are embedded deeply in the traditions, tales and cultural DNA of the West. You'll fall in love with Zeus, marvel at the birth of Athena, wince at Cronus and Gaia's revenge on Ouranos, weep with King Midas and hunt with the beautiful and ferocious Artemis.
Spellbinding, informative and moving, Stephen Fry's Mythos perfectly captures these stories for the modern age - in all their rich and deeply human relevance.
“Entertaining and edifying. The best thing he's written since his superb first novel”
“Ebullient and funny, Fry retells the Greek myths with elegance”
“A cracking good story”

Express and Star
